Lucent to Sell Gear Based on BreezeMax

By Nancy Gohring

Alvarion already has a reputation of being a (if not the) leader in developing WiMax products, but a deal announced today with Lucent gives it even more credibility: Lucent said it would integrate WiMax technology into its broadband product line by using Alvarion’s BreezeMax gear. It’s not totally clear what Lucent is after here when it says that it will deliver a converged solution that enables the seamless interoperability of WiMax, 3G, Wi-Fi, and landline networks. If Lucent is trying to promote a seamless end user offering that roams from 3G to Wi-Fi to WiMax, well, that’s a great idea but they’d be jumping the gun a bit.

I suspect that some of the language in the press release is designed to placate Lucent’s mobile operator customers. A Lucent executive is quoted as saying that WiMax complements mobile and landline networks—the comment seems aimed at ensuring the market that WiMax won’t steal market share from the mobile operators.

While the WiMax Forum has a long list of heavy hitter vendors as members, having Lucent actually marketing products is a great step in the right direction. Lucent has been producing carrier-grade equipment for a long time and its stamp of approval on WiMax could go a long way.
